I've just checked in what I hope is a fix for this to CVS.  There were
few details in the initial problem report so apparently I was trying to
duplicate the problem in a way that was unlike the OP.  When I tried a
different method, I was able to see a problem with 'fg'.  However,
neither you or the OP actually described the problem in enough detail
for me to know for sure if what I saw was what you saw.

You're talking about "the same updates" so it isn't clear if you are
aware of the fact that 1.7.0-56 has been released.  A few problems with
process creation were fixed there.  There have been some reports that
there are ongoing problems but I'm unable to duplicate them.
